aqy distillery or apparatus used for
the manufacture of intoxicating liquor
in violation of the laws of North
Carolina." We urge all citizens to
require of sheriffs the faithful dis
charge of this duty and hold them re
sponsible also for the activity or
fefljire of their deputies. We believe
the people should support in pri
maries and elections candidates for
sheriff who abstain from the use of
intoxicating liquors. , If making and
selling liquor is unlawful, the con
sunter is a party to the crime., Hot
arty-candidates iror sheriff, but candi
dates for judge, solicitor and recorder

We urge our teachers throughout

The people must be brought to a

Those who vote are the only ones who
really count as citizens of the Re
public. As long as approximately
half of those who are entitled to ex

every non-participating citizen real

urge all citizens to meet this respon

country knows what a campaign he
made in the face of the greatest odds
a candidate for President has ever
known. He realised in the very out
set that he was doomed but the uni
versal omen of defeat set his soul on
fire with zeal for his cause, the league
of nations, and the last days of his
campaign thrilled his political ene
mies with admiration. Cox is a per
sonality. John W. Davis is another of a
still higher order than McAdoo,
Smith or Cox. He is a mind, an in
dividuality, his friends declare. It
seldom happens that the American
people turn to a man of his type for
President. They did in Jefferson and
Wilson who have been called the two
great intellects of the White House.
When Thomas J. Walsh or Carter
Glass speaks on the floor of the sen
ate they receive an attention that is
given to very few other senators.
Walsh is a personality; Glass is an
of Indiana and Senutor Robinson of
el. An unknown or utile Known man
like a pig In a bag cannot be Fold to
the country in the few remaining
months for resident. The public
must have some general knowledge
of the man whom the New ork con-
venuon names me next morning ri-
ter he is named
if he is to tie elected.
There will be a memorial service at
, tains have not yet been hung In the
new auditorium of the school, where
all the other exercises were held.
